How to edit an ODOO template (which was customized using website builder) by inheriting it in my module?

I have done some editing to the home page of ODOO website using the EDIT button at the top-left corner. After some time, I have decided to make some changes to the Home page by inheriting the XML template to my module and done the changes in the template. But these changes are not reflecting in the web page. I have faced this problem many times on customizing the template with the website builder of ODOO. I have noticed that the changes are directly applied to the XML view which can be seen at Settings->Technical Settings->User Interface->Views and this is not changed to the previous state even the module is upgraded. Is there any way I could customize the template by inheriting it in my module in this case? The customizations work for all templates for which I have done no editing in the website builder.

I could help you to develop anything and solve complex problems based on technologies, integrations and tricky stuffs mostly in Python with OpenERP/Odoo, Zato, Django and many others frameworks programming languages and technologies.

I offers consulting services to anyone with an unanswered questions or needs for customizations. Think about it, maybe it's better to have an expert to solve your issues and projects than having a full-time employee trying to understand what to do and how

When a view/template is saved through the website editor it marks if exists the related ir.model.data record as noupdate = True to do not apply changes to the view/template a module is updated. To do the change you need to remove the noupdate value to that record on the ir.model.data model table
